Yammer CEO David Sacks has apparently made good on his offer of a $25,000 signing bonus for any Yahoo employee that leaves to join his enterprise social network company.Sacks has hired 5 employees and received around 70 applications from former Yahoos after he tweeted the offer to Yahoo employees who would leave to join Yammer, Forbes reports.

Sacks wasn’t happy when Yahoo’s sued Facebook. He told Business Insider earlier that he thinks Yahoo is eyeing patents as a new revenue centre, which sets a dangerous precedent.

The offer is still open until May 15 — so if you’re on your way out or at risk of being fired, you might want to shoot him a message.
